Service Conditions - The equipment shall operate satisfactorily under
of the environmental service conditions or reasonable combination of these conditions as
specified in Specification MIL-E-5400 for Class II equipment, except as modified herein:
Vibration - The equipment shall operate satisfactorily when subjected to
the vibration requirements of Curve I of Specification MIL-E-5400.
Altitude - The equipment shall operate satisfactorily when subjected to
the altitude requirements of Specification MIL-E-5400 with the exception that the operational
altitude be limited to 50,000 feet.
Warm-Up Time - The equipment shall require no warm-up time.
Primary Input Power Requirements - The equipment shall meet all appli-
cable requirements of MIL-STD-704 and shall give specified performance from the following
power sources with characteristics as defined in MIL-STD-704 having limits as specified
therein. The power required shall not exceed the specified amounts.
(1) AC Power (Single Phase) 115V, 400Hz, Category "B", 10 VA
(2) AC Power (Single Phase) 5V, 400Hz, Category "B", 5 VA
(3) DC Power 28V, Category "B", 0.25 amp, 7 Watts
Degraded Performance - Degraded performance will be permitted for
voltage transients not exceeding O. 5 second during normal electric system operation.
Operation shall return to normal with no resulting damage to the equipment.
Performance - Unless otherwise specified, values set forth to establish
the requirements for satisfactory performance apply to performance under both standard and
extreme service conditions. When reduced performance under the extreme conditions is
acceptable, tolerances or values setting forth acceptable variations from the performance
under the standard conditions will be specified.
Operation - The system, upon depression of the weapons release button,
shall provide a selectable quantity of output release signals to any number of weapon stations,
up to a maximum of eight wing stations and one center station, that may exist aboard the air-
craft. The stations that are to receive the release signals are those selected by the pilot on
the aircraft's station select panel, not supplied as part of this equipment.
Modes of Release - The system herein described shall generate release
signals, as described in 3.4.1, in the followlng manner:
(1) To cause stores drop in ripple or step pairs (one from port and one
To cause stores drop in ripple or step singles (one from port and then
one from starboard).
